Cookies on the FRANCE LAIT website

For the purposes of adapting the website to its visitors’ requirements, we monitor the number of visits and page views, as well as the activity of visitors within the website and returning visitor frequency.
Google Analytics, the statistical tool used by this website, creates a cookie with a unique identifier, which has a retention period limited to 13 months. We also collect your IP address in order to determine the town or city you are connecting from. This is immediately anonymized after use. The CNIL (French data protection agency) cannot therefore under any circumstances use it to trace an actual person.

If you share the use of your terminal with other people

If your terminal is used by several people, and when the same terminal has several different browsers, we cannot be absolutely certain that the services and advertisements intended for your terminal will correctly correspond to your own use of this terminal rather than to that of another user of this terminal.
Where applicable, sharing the use of your terminal and the configuration of your browser settings as regards cookies with other people is done by your own choice and at your own responsibility.

We may adapt the offers and advertisements intended for you based on information related to your terminal’s browsing on our website or within websites or services published by third parties and on which we issue cookies.
Where you have provided us with personal information about yourself (notably your email address) during your registration, subscription or access to our website, we may, subject to your preferences, associate browsing information related to your terminal, processed by cookies issued by us, with your personal data, in order to send you email promotions or to display on your terminal, within advertising areas containing cookies issued by us, customised advertisements specifically intended for you and which may interest you personally.
You may at any time ask to no longer receive advertisements or promotions adapted to your terminal’s browsing information by contacting us directly and free of charge, or by using the unsubscribe link included in any promotional material we may send you by email.
